Plot Summary

All hope was lost until Zoey Hennessy walked back into my world, shaking it up beyond repair when she uttered two simple words.

He’s alive.

She speaks of her brother, my Saint, the man who lost everything to set me free.

I believed he was dead. I saw it with my own two eyes. But when Zoey proves he’s alive and being held captive by a monster, I know what I have to do.

It’s time I saved him.

The plan is dangerous, and there are no guarantees I will survive. But if this nightmare has taught me one thing, it’s that I don’t cower in fear. I am a woman hell-bent on getting back the man she loves, and nothing, no one will stand in my way.

However, what I uncover can only be described as hell on earth. The darkness has finally won, and Saint is lost to me forever.

Or so I thought.

Aleksei Popov is anything but a hero, yet in this story—he’s mine. Everything I believed in is about to be turned upside down, and with freedom within my grasp, I wonder how far I will go, and who I will sacrifice in order to set myself free.

My Review

In this 3rd and final instalment of All The Pretty Things series there is pain, heartbreak and torture to last a lifetime. I struggled a bit to read some scenes that were simply brutal. Saint suffers dearly in this book and my heart aches for him. No one should go through something like this. This series is a dark romance so we readers come somewhat prepared to read illegal and brutal things but this just broke my heart. So if you’re going to read this book, beware of male rape and all the psichological damage that stalks a person after something like that. These scenes reminded me a lot of another story: Outlander (I believe everyone knows what scene I’m talking about).

Saint is such an unique anti hero character. He doesn’t do wrong in my eyes. He’s so complex and his development almost carries the entire series. And Willow is so strong that we couldn’t be more proud of this girl. She just faces every problem that gets thrown her way. 

I’ve gone through these pages without stopping, with tears in my eyes. It’s a great ending to an amazing series. One of the best dark romances I’ve ever read!
